Laughing Out Loud, I Fly: Poems in English and Spanish

This book is about Juan Felipe Herrera
Dive into the vibrant world of "Laughing Out Loud, I Fly: Poems in English and Spanish," where the joy and complexity of a bicultural life burst forth in the expressive words of U.S. Poet Laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera. Published on September 8, 2015, this Pura Belpré Honor-winning collection masterfully blends English and Spanish, inviting elementary school readers into a rhythmic exploration of identity and growth amidst two cultures. Herrera's poems oscillate between sweet melodies and a maraca's beat, evoking imagery as rich as mole de olé and as refreshing as pineapple tamales. Through a playful mix of language and Karen Barbour’s whimsical illustrations, this book not only captures the essence of childhood wonder but also addresses deeper themes of education equity, gender equality, and racial justice. It encourages young readers to laugh out loud and soar high, embracing the beauty of their own stories and the power of their voices in a multicultural world.
